Science of Compression Bandages

Compression treatment for chronic venous diseases is associated with a wide range of challenges and often produces uncertain clinical outcomes. Investigating and exploiting the performance of compression bandage would further improve the knowledge of compression management and would give a holistic picture of this promising area. This book discusses the fundamentals of compression therapy i.e. compression or pressure through multi-disciplinary approaches involving various concepts of physics, biological science, biomaterials, fabric engineering, structural dynamics, material science, technical textiles and instrumentation to better deal with compression bandaging from different perspectives.
